Windows 7: Update existing backup after fresh Windows 7 installation

Update existing backup after fresh Windows 7 installation

I have an existing Windows backup of my documents on an external HDD. I have just performed a fresh installation of my OS (Windows 7 Ultimate x64) and would like to be able to continue performing incremental backups to the existing backup.
Is this possible because when I try, it tries to make a fresh backup ?

Additionally, I changed the name of the computer, I thought this may be the problem so have renamed the existing backup to the new computer name, still no luck.

Any ideas ?
